    Hi Keith

    What were you on before? Most of these kind of tablets do have side effects. Once they start to get into your system 1 to 3 weeks they are not as noticeable. It's worth it in long run to have no anxiety. Let me know how it goes.

    Hi Keith, i had sleep anxiety and was hardly sleeping at all thats why i went on citalopram.  I did get some side effects but compared to not sleeping they were bearable. just made me very sleepy, hot sweats, bit shaky but i started sleeping right through the night after taking them for 5 nights which was such a releif.

    I've been on them coming up to 6 mnths now and still sleeping well.

    Good luck

    I would say no but that's just my experience. Are you seeing a Psychiatrist?
